In the 20th century,

  • as part of the human development thrust, The Rev. Henry Clarke, a Rector in Westmoreland, established the Westmoreland Building Society which grew to become The Jamaica National Group; and Archdeacon Downer founded the Victoria Building Society in Kingston, both intended to provide housing;
  • the structure of the Diocese was modified since the late twentieth century. One of the most significant changes in this respect was the admission of women to ordained ministry as of 1996;
  • both Mandeville and Montego Bay joined Kingston as Regional Centres, with Kingston and Montego Bay being led by Suffragan Bishops.
